The Town of Wilton will be re-opening the Wilton High School Varsity Baseball and Varsity Softball fields on a limited basis effective, Thursday, May 21, subject to social distancing requirements and Town guidelines for responsible play.
With the limited re-opening, the following protocols are being implemented:
- The Varsity Baseball and Varsity Softball fields will be available for Wilton family use only, not to exceed a total of five (5) people per field. Use is for family free play only; no team practices or private lessons are allowed. All other baseball and softball fields, including the junior varsity fields, remain closed.
- Varsity Baseball and Softball field use is by online reservation only, seven days a week from 9:30 a.m.-4:45 p.m. Residents may reserve a field for a one-hour time period each day. There are no walk-ups permitted.
- Reservations must be made online through the Wilton Parks & Recreation website. Contact Kregg Zulkeski via email if unable to access the website. Online reservations must be made at least 24 hours in advance.
- The Phase 1 protocol provides for field use on a restricted basis and may be adjusted for changing circumstances and experience after opening.
The Town has released a detailed Phase 1 Protocol document for this limited re-opening of Varsity Baseball and Varsity Softball fields. Access to fields will be rolled out in phases, each with a specific and distinct protocol. Town officials commented in a press release, “The cooperation of those using the facilities is important to keep the community safe and to lay the groundwork for continued facility openings.”
